California Asset Management Program (“CAMP” or the “Program”) is a California Joint Powers Authority (“JPA”) established in 1989 to provide California public agencies with professional investment services. Investments offered through the Cash Reserve Portfolio (the “Pool” or the “CAMP Pool”) and CAMP Term are permitted for all local agencies under California Government Code Section 53601(p). The Program also offers educational resources, market updates and arbitrage rebate compliance services.
CAMP is directed by a Board of Trustees, which is made up of experienced local government finance directors and treasurers.
CAMP offers a range of services to assist public agencies with investing their operating funds, bond proceeds, debt service funds, and reserve funds. Whether your agency is looking for daily liquidity or cost-effective access to high-quality fixed income markets, CAMP can help with the following options:
CAMP Pool: This fully liquid, stable net asset value (NAV) investment option stresses daily liquidity and safety of principal as the two primary objectives, as underscored by its AAAm* rating from Standard & Poor’s. Earning a competitive yield is a third goal after safety and liquidity.
CAMP Term (“Term”): This investment option is for agencies with known cash flows to have an opportunity to optimize interest earnings. This fixed-rate, fixed-term investment option, rated AAAf** by Fitch, offers securities with maturities ranging from 60 days to one year. Term investments are designed to match a Shareholder’s specific cash flow requirements. Investment principal and interest are paid at maturity, with an automatic sweep into the CAMP Pool.
Specialized service options: CAMP also offers individually managed portfolios with investment and safekeeping services at a reasonable cost and arbitrage rebate analysis and calculation for bond proceeds invested with CAMP. These services are authorized by the Board of Trustees and administered by CAMP’s investment adviser, PFM Asset Management LLC (“PFMAM” or the “Investment Adviser”).

*Standard & Poor’s fund ratings are based on analysis of credit quality, market price exposure, and management. According to Standard & Poor’s rating criteria, the AAAm rating signifies excellent safety of invested principal and a superior capacity to maintain a $1.00 per share net asset value. However, it should be understood that the rating is not a “market” rating nor a recommendation to buy, hold or sell the securities. For a full description on rating methodology, visit Standard & Poor's website.
**The AAAf rating reflects Fitch Ratings’ (“Fitch”) review of the Term program’s investment and credit guidelines, the portfolio’s credit quality and diversification, as well as the capabilities of PFM Asset Management LLC as investment adviser. It indicates the highest underlying credit quality (or lowest vulnerability to default). However, it should be understood that this rating is not a “market” rating nor a recommendation to buy, hold or sell the securities.
